These Wordles, with extra challenges added, are addictive. I have used the given words in order, and added a mere twenty (twenty-four if you count the title) to give a rhyming story. I hope it is not now regarded as racist to infer that Scots are thrifty!
We used to talk; the end now stands;
Your tales, on surface smooth, disproved at last;
False flow killed hope for circle bands;
For us more drips serve not; romance is past.
